USDA Inspection Report: 18 Sep 2011

Code: 06D01
Violation: 416.3(c)

Citation: September 18, 2011 07:37 hours While conducting an unscheduled, 01C02, sanitary operations inspection procedure of the evisceration department, I encountered two (2), fifty-five (55) gallon capacity, plastic receptacles this establishment identifies by shape (round) as permitted solely for use in storing and transporting inedible material. Both barrels were located beneath the reprocessing line and both had holes in their bottoms. The first barrel, gray in color, had three (3) holes, each approximately 3/8 of an inch in diameter, drilled in the center of its bottom. The second, red barrel had three (3) holes ranging in size from 1/4 to 3/4 of an inch wide that had developed along the outside edge of it circular bottom after repeated abrasion by the facility's concrete and epoxy floorings. I directed an employee to remove the receptacles I had identified out of the department and prevent them from reentering and being used in any of the facility's food production zones. At the time of my discovery, neither inedible material nor poultry carcasses or parts condemned by the Food Safety and Inspection Service's on-line inspection personnel were present in the receptacles. No product was in the immediate vicinity of the containers at the time I made my observations. Had these leaking barrels remained and been utilized in the department their contents would have included, but not have been limited to, the following: trimmed bruises, inflammatory process, tumors, and fecal, bile, and ingesta contamination; and poultry carcasses and parts condemned for septicemia/toxemia, synovitis, airsacculitis; and the inedible portions of poultry viscera. This constitutes a failure to comply with the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 9, Chapter III, Animals and Animal Products, Subchapter E, Regulatory Requirements under the Federal Poultry Products Inspection Act, Part 416, Sanitation, Section 3(c). The facility's QC/HACCP director, Mr. [redacted] was informed of the noncompliances upon receipt of this record. Federally-inspected establishments are required to maintain the construction of receptacles used for storing inedible material to prevent the adulteration of product and the creation of insanitary conditions. This document serves as written notification that failure to comply with regulatory requirement(s) may result in additional regulatory and/or administrative action(s).


416.3(c) Receptacles used for storing inedible material must be of such material and construction that their use will not result in the adulteration of any edible product or in the creation of insanitary conditions. Such receptacles must not be used for storing any edible product and must bear conspicuous and distinctive marking to identify permitted uses.
